Dubai event encourages a vegetarian lifestyle
Fruitarian, vegan, or raw foodie? If you have wondered what the difference is, then the Meveg Congress, opening today, might be the thing for you.
The two-day event at the Dubai World Trade Centre brings together 16 proponents of healthy living from as far as Singapore, Russia and the United States.
The effort seeks to convince audiences that ditching meat, even if only for a few days each week, can help people and the planet to become healthier.
That message is particularly relevant in the UAE, which has very high levels of diabetes and obesity, as well as a deep environmental footprint in the world.
